A unique element to the Staunch Moderates Movement is its breakthrough into the music business with
two complete hip hop albums produced in association with the famed Chicago Recording Company. The
first album released in 2021, “The First Realm,” and sophomore album released this year, “Mission
Peace,” are representative of the movement’s belief that it can reach a broader, more diverse audience
through various creative mediums. The album songs convey the movement’s various missives and
endeavors and are performed by Casanova Ace and Gregory T. Simmons through a spoken word lyrical
style. Notably, the “Mission Peace” album succeeded in making the 2023 Grammys ballot in three
categories – Best Rock Performance, Best Rap Album, and Album of the Year. Total viewership of the
movement’s audio and video content is over 72 million views and the music has been growing rotation
on numerous traditional radio outlets across the country.
